This communication is being sent to share the proposed boundaries for Junction and our newest school, Fiddyment Farm Elementary, beginning with the 2013-2014 school year. The projected enrollment for kindergarten through fifth grade students in the WestPark and Fiddyment Farm development areas for the beginning of the 2013 school year is eight hundred and eighty-five. In determining the proposed boundaries for Junction and Fiddyment Farm, the district has evaluated the population of students living in close proximity to Junction and also the need to alleviate the crowded conditions at Junction and the need to open Fiddyment Farm. Please see the attached map of the West Plan area which highlights the various attendance areas.
Currently, all students attend Junction Elementary. Area 460 is where Fiddyment Farm School is located, at 4001 Brick Mason Circle. Areas 462, 466, and 468 all have future school sites designated to be built within the next decade depending on the pace of growth. Area 464 contains the majority of current Junction students and will be the core of the Junction attendance area for years to come.
The proposed boundaries for Fiddyment Farm would include areas 460, 462, and 466 excluding Bickleigh Loop, Hillsford Court, Liphan Court, Rushford Court, and Wallspring Court, which would remain part of the Junction attendance area. With these proposed changes, Fiddyment Farm is projected to begin the school year with nearly three hundred students and Junction would have approximately six hundred students.
Current fourth grade students that have attended Junction for at least one full school year and reside in the designated boundary for Fiddyment Farm would have the option of completing the fifth grade at Junction. Siblings of these eligible students would also be grandfathered into Junction if the parents choose. Busing opportunities will be available to students in the Fiddyment Farm attendance area who live more than two miles from the school site.
As always, parents wishing to have their students attend a school in the district other than their school of attendance may have the option of submitting an intra-district application. Applications may be picked-up at your school of residence or by accessing the district’s website under the heading of "Parents."
If you have questions regarding these proposed boundary changes, please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via phone at (916) 771-1600, Extension 114.
